I don’t know about you all, but I strongly dislike…..ok, HATE mealtime! I know…my title was a bit misleading. Sorry, couldn’t help myself.
- We have the boy, who wants carbs in all forms, all day long. He asks for cheese sandwiches from the time he wakes up, until the time he goes to sleep. He could eat pasta from now until the cows come home.
- We have big brother, who has a peanut/tree nut allergy, and is one of the pickiest eaters I have ever met. He hates pasta, pizza, and ice cream is too cold.. to just name a few. Has a very strange taste buds for a child. He does, however, love whitefish salad… yeah I said that. If I put that on an ice cream cone, it would be the best day. Oh and potatoes in any form…he love chips, fries, and mashed potatoes.
- And then we have little sister who wants anything, except what you put in front of her. Unless of course daddy is eating it or daddy made it, the it is the best thing in the world…ugh..
Here is a little schematic of last night’s dinner…notice all ingredients are separate….since each child will eat something different. And god forbid you get it wrong….well, then I just feel sorry for you.
Here is a little schematic of who get’s what:
Notice…the boy gets pasta with sauce and meat…but no cheese. Cheese makes it too gooey mommy!
Notice..little sister gets pasta with meat and cheese..but no sauce. Sauce makes it yucky mommy. And since daddy didn’t make it or eat some, only a few bites will be taken out of that plate.
Notice..big brother gets seasoned chopped meat with fries on the side (because he NEEDS french fries). Pasta is gross mommy, and what I am eating cannot touch each other.
I am exhausted after just writing this. And, this was just one meal out of the 3 meals a day for the next 18 years at least..lol.
Enjoy your dinner everyone!!!
